DeMarcus Cousins thought he’d sit this play out

DeMarcus needed a quick breather during an offensive possession in the Kings’ win at Minnesota last night. Rudy Gay drove to the basket with his head down, as Rudy Gay does, so Boogie took the opportunity to rest up for the final minutes of the game.

To be fair, Boogie’s in-game break came after a couple of Sacramento turnovers and Gay disappearing on defense. He’s still not happy over the firing of his head coach, either.

    “To be fair” ??? To be fair, the guy makes tens of millions of dollars and therefore should hustle at all times. Drew, I love Boogie, but man, you take up for him a little too much sometimes. I know he’s (seemingly) your favorite ex-cat, but it’s kind of weird how you think he can do no wrong.

      Most NBA guys don’t hustle. And whether you make millions or minimum wage, shouldn’t you hustle all the time? Morality doesn’t only apply to the rich.

      He makes 14, but taxes are high in California, probably “only” takes home 7

    I can see all five T-Wolves players in the shot, but only four SAC players, and one of them disappears early in the play. Where’s the fifth SAC player? You never see him! Besides stars from all NBA teams take plays off. It’s not as though Kobe is known for being a great defender.

      12 nba all defensive team selections, is 2nd most ever. Kobe must have guarded somebody there, genius. Boogie is gonna miss another all star game. Wonder why? You don’t pull this crap when you’re the leader of the team. Hopefully he’s still this good when he’s 30. By then, he may be mature enough to get some votes.

    The 5th King player is at the other end of the court snowbirding. It’s the Kings new strategy to play 4 on 5 defensively, because their owner saw it in a girl’s high school game and thought it could revolutionize the NBA. TRUE STORY

    He’s not in great shape right now. He missed over a month with viral meningitis and had a stomach bug last week. They’re playing him too many minutes (over 30 a game) and he just doesn’t have it right now. Plus this was like their 3rd road game in like four nights.

    Probably also didn’t want to get accused of instigating it.

    Don’t want to be too eager to defend slothfulness…(and I am eating my lunch whilst surfing KSR!)…but could be a designed “look tired play”, where the Kings drive to basket for in a layup attempt, and then Boogie crashes the board for a rebound dunk….or he could be just hanging out….

    Celtics trade James Young, Kelly Olynyk, Gerald Wallace (salary filler, a trade exemption could be used if they didn’t want to take on any salary I think), Clippers 2015 1st round pick, Mavericks 2015 1st round pick, and Nets 2016 1st round pick for Demarcus Cousins…please let this happen…
